on the middle east. nbc's ron mott is with congressman paul ryan and he's joining us from roanoke, virginia, with more. part of a state you're going to be doing a lot of time in, no doubt. ron, good morning. >> hey, there, alex. good saturday morning to you. although this has not been the best week for the romney campaign, and a lot of it stemming from a statement he sent out on tuesday night when these attacks were just known here in the states, critical of the obama administration's handling of that crisis. problem for the campaign is that the extent of the violence there was not fully known at the time, and the statement was actually released by the embassy to try to quell that protest before it turned violent. now mitt romney has been criticized by democrats and the president who came out the next day that he has a tendency to shoot first and aim later. mitt romney has been on the defensive since then. he softened his stance a little bit yesterday in an interview on national television where he said that the statement itself was not appropriate. he said he agrees with the white house th
no problem talking about god faith or confirming jerusalem as israel's capital. virginia's attorney general spoke to the crowd. ken cuccinelli is joining us live from the summit now. >> good afternoon. >> uma: the economy is still dominant and do you think that mitt romney is doing enough to connect with voters who are having a very tough time in this tough economy? >> he had to get through a long, tough primary and he's got some catch-up to do that will take him all the way to election day. in virginia, we're seeing him or paul ryan on a nearly weekly basis. paul ryan was there yesterday, i believe mitt romney was there wednesday. and he's talking to people one on one and introducing himself in person, in virginia for sure and i know he's doing that around the country as well. so he's undertaking that task while talking to people about the economy, the continuing bad job numbers which actually mask how bad it is. it's interesting that over 8% unemployment, that's a benchmark the president set years ago when he proposed his massive stimulus package. and he has failed to meet his own benchma

, florida and virginia. as we pull out, we can show you the map tonight. and in all of those three key battlegrounds, president obama is now, in fact, pulling ahead. this is key. so we want to turn to our senior political correspondent jon karl to tell us more about what's happening tonight. jon, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, david. it looks like president obama got a real boost out of his convention. and now, mitt romney is scrambling to catch up. for the romneys this morning, it was all laughs, as they taped an interview to air on tuesday's "live with kelly and michael." >> and what does mitt wear to bed? >> really? really? >> i didn't write the question, man. i promise. i didn't write the question. >> yes, he did. >> i hear the best answer is "as little as possible." >> reporter: but when it comes to the campaign, it looks bad for romney. worse than at any time since he clinched the republican nomination in may. first, those new polls in ohio, virginia and florida. they're the three biggest battleground states and romney is tanking in all of them. and the big picture is e
in this race. they know they've got to do a lot of work here in florida, also in virginia, also in ohio. so we expect that those three states with figure prominently on the campaign schedule going forward for paul ryan and mitt romney. >> ron mott, thanks very much keeping an eye on things for us in florida. we appreciate that. >>> let's go to our other big story. we have new developments over the film that sparked outrage around the world. one of the member behind that video, nakoula was taken in for questioning this morning. authorities want to know if he violated probation. and cleanup from the riots tahrir square. a 35-year-old man died from bird shot wounds overnight. >>> meanwhile the protests have now spread beyond the middle east and north africa. in sidney, australia, hundreds of protesters clashed with police outside a building outside the u.s. consulate. >>> but perhaps the most dramatic and compelling developments of the day come from libya where the u.s. government is making a big push to solve the murder of four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya. our nbc reporter
, florida, virginia, colorado, those big states. >> that the ruinous. >> secondly obama is at 53% approval and third in the head to head polls the average in real clear politics puts obama ahead about 4 points. that is very, very tough to overcome and it is hard to see what's going to bring romney around to overcome it. >> what are the three states he has to show well in? >> romney's got to win virginia, florida and ohio. >> he is behind in all three right now. >> behind in all three. >> can he close the gap? >> i think he can close the gap but it is going it take something. i don't see what will do it because i think foreign policy will be the benefit to the president who can act. >> john you need a little more time to settle down after the convention. no doubt the democrats had quite an effective convention, bill clinton's speech was effective. there is a 1 or two point leland nationally, ohio romney really can't win without ohio and the obama campaign has done a number on him there and the debates, there is major, major pressure on romney to perform well in the debates. >> the gender ga
army is not in control of that area. there are parts of virginia where the union army still has a foothold. >> president clinton issued an early version of the emancipation proclamation calling the victory at antietam. this weekend on american history tv, historians take your questions on the battle and repercussions on the single bloodiest day of fighting in american history. at noon eastern on c-span 3. >> i think people really like to viewsere politicians' have shifted over the years. they want to see whether mitt romney in 1994 was campaign for welfare reform, against welfare reform, against the motion. but what -- against abortion. there is an element that is like a gotcha element. there is also an element that this is incredibly interesting. >> i tried to think why it is that he has changed so often. why does he find it so difficult to come down on one side of an issue and instead float between both sides of the issue. >> running for state office for the first time, does it help if there is a governor named rod blagojevich if your name is barack obama? >> the best way to d
, and virginia. they kind of need that. what's going on? >> the country feels better with it -- about itself according to the right track-wrong track numbers, since the end of both conventions. the second convention was the democratic convention. the bounce seems to be -- gwen: we should point out none of this is in the wake of the foreign policy -- >> no. and on the economic issues the president is closing the gap and on the foreign policy issues he's widening it. among key demographic groups, those who earn for -- more than $ 0,000s he's competitive with romney. and among those who are single, minorities, he is expanding his lead. where romney needs to gain he is either losing or just keeping steady. >> why are those things happening? i think the reason is because governor romney has made a compefrling case that the economy didn't -- srnt good enough but he has to take it further and say why shoe hire him him -- him instead and he hasn't been able to, at least not with enough voters. as time goes on in the campaign, he's losing opportunities to do that, so therefore we have a situation whe
holding the yellow gumballs, ohio, virginia and florida. in both florida and virginia, president obama leads romney by five points among voters. 49% to 44%. in ohio, the president leads by seven points, 52-43. if the election were held today and they voted the way the polls predicted, the total electoral votes president obama would win from those three states, florida, ohio, and virginia, that would equal 60 more electoral votes. that is almost double the 33 votes he needs to win. a win in any of the other would just be icing on the president's victory cake. of course, the election is not being held today. there are more than seven weeks to go and three debates before the elections. the polls also reveal that most people have already made up their minds about how they are going to vote. numbers are not looking good for mitt romney. neither is the news. governor romney has spent the election trying to convince us that his background as a businessman uniquely qualifies him for the job of executive and chief in charge of our nation and its aisliling economy. executive and chief is only pa
